Shabby Chic Cupcake Sign by a cabinet doorMart 21, 2021
I was inspired to create a cute cupcake sign when I saw my girls sitting at their little table drinking tea. I thought it would be cute to have a little cafe or cupcake sign, a bakery that would be sure to hang on the wall of their playroom. Here’s how I turned that closet door I saved from the trash into this adorable shabby chic cupcake sign.
I painted it with Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg and then Old White. I perturbed it slightly. I had this cupcake poster printed in reverse order and applied Mod Podge to the ink side and then placed it on the middle layer and let it dry for at least 6 hours. I then set about wetting and rubbing the paper very gently. It took forever but I love the results. This was an inkjet copy for those who are wondering, but I’ve used both toner and inkjet and they both work for this type of project. I also used regular mod podge.
Although I never got around to hanging it in their playroom, I used it as a cupcake display sign for their Frozen birthday party!
And here is the pre-transformation cabinet!
